"Down East Dickering" is a reality docu-series on History Channel that follows four groups of New Englanders for whom "dickering" is a way of life. Whether it's building a bridge, climbing a bell tower or officiating a wedding, they'll do whatever it takes to make a few bucks so they can enjoy life on their own terms.

In "down east" Maine, a group of colorful locals known as "dickerers" live on their own terms — no time clocks, no bosses, no rules. How? By scouring Uncle Henry's — a local magazine filled with classified ads — and wheeling and dealing their way through its pages of odd jobs, crazy barters, offbeat goods and other jaw-dropping ways to make a quick buck.

For dickering pros Tony, Clint, Yummy and the rest of their gang, opportunity knocks every Thursday when their "bible" — the latest issue of Uncle Henry's — is published. A dickerer's currency can be made up of anything from a bucket of hubcaps to a bushel of pears, and every dickerer worth his salt is an expert haggler who knows how to spot a deal. As long as they can get their hands on something that needs fixing, swapping, or selling, the dickerers can use their skills and a hard day's work to fuel their freewheeling lifestyle. Each has a different strategy, but all have the same goal: spend a little, make a lot, and do it before the next the guy.

Season 2

In the second season, viewers will travel all over the state of Maine with the dickerers, going wherever there's a good deal to be had. Each episode is jam-packed with unique transactions, from trading spare parts for a car repair to getting a few hours of labor in exchange for some fresh lobster. These guys live life on their own terms — no time clocks, no bosses, and no rules. Every dickerer depends on Uncle Henry's to help them spot a deal, distinguish trash from treasure, and fix, sell or swap ... and they're all trying to do it faster than the next guy. Each group may have different strategies, but they all share the same goals: spend a little, make a lot, and enjoy life.

"Down East Dickering" is produced for History by Pilgrim Studios. Elaine Frontain Bryant and Susan Werbe are executive producers for History. Craig Piligian, Mike Nichols and Bryan Severance are executive producers for Pilgrim Studios.
